This weekend was the Swiss Birdrace with 20 teams racing around to see as many species as possible. I joined a team with Adrian and Urs and we managed to find 120 species which puts us up to third place. The winners broke the record with 132 species.
Some new ones for me involved:

03/09/2010

344: Long-eared Owl

04/09/2010

345: Barn Owl
346: Turtle Dove
347: Stock Dove

The first owl was near Col de Jaman in western Switzerland, the other three at Grosses Moos where most team met in the evening.
